Directions Step-By-Step

Rub chuck roast on both sides with meat tenderizer then place on platter to rest.
Add toasted cumin, adobo, minced garlic, onion powder, and ground peppercorn
Medley, red pepper flakes and dark brown sugar mix well.
Coat both sides of chuck roast and place uncovered in refrigerator for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
While roast is resting start sweet potatoes.
1 4-quart pot filled 2/3 with water and salt. Place on medium high heat. Add peeled and quartered sweet potatoes and cook for 10 minutes. Remove from pot and place on foil lined pan. Drizzle with garlic flavored olive oil and sprinkle with fresh cilantro and dark brown sugar set aside.
Using a charcoal grill build a medium hot fire on one side of grill to place roast and then place aluminum foil with sweet potatoes on side with out fire. Make sure you poke at least 12 holes in foil so smoke and heat get to all potatoes. Close cover on grill for 7 minutes then turn chuck roast and grill another 7 minutes. Turn potatoes each time you turn roast. Potatoes need to be fork tender so they may need an extra few minutes.
Remove roast to a baking sheet tent with foil and place in a 375 degree preheated oven bake for 20-30 minutes If you like your meat medium to well you may want to leave in oven longer. We like it pink in the middle remove from oven to rest. Place sweet potatoes and black beans in large bowl add juice of one lime and fresh cilantro and toss gently.
Remove tent from roast and slice on the diagonal place in center of platter spoon sweet potatoes and bean mixture around sliced roast and squeeze the juice of 1 lime over entire platter. Cut 2 limes into quarters and place over and around dish.
